Inactive User Manager - phpBB updating advice please

Hi Andreas, I have the released version running really well to automate our user cancellation process. Our users have to log in at least once a year to retain an account; so I have the delay between reminders set at 120 days, and auto delete set to 30 days after the 3rd reminder - it works a treat. ...

Re: [3.1][3.2][RC] PhpBB IUM (Inactive User Manager/reminder)

Hi Andreas Re the Sleeper e-mail text. I am modifying the en template without difficulty to adapt it to our specific needs. If I wish to create a sleeper.txt file in another language, can I simply copy the existing en folder, update the sleeper.txt file into the new language and save it in the ext l...

Re: [3.1][3.2][RC] PhpBB IUM (Inactive User Manager/reminder)

Hi again Question: what is the timing of the 3 reminder e-mails please ?, I assume that they are sent at the same intervals as the 'sleeper' timer, e.g. every 30 days or whatever time is set; is this correct ? You have some minor typos on the ACP screens: IUM Configuration User is able to self delet...

Re: [3.2][BETA] Email Only Password Reset

Hi Martii Extension seems to work fine, but functionality not much of an improvement in my view on the standard phpBB Forgot Password arrangement. Users still end up having a two step process (activate plus login with a random password). I find that many of my users struggle with this forgot passwor...

Re: [3.1][3.2][RC] PhpBB IUM (Inactive User Manager/reminder)

Hi andreask I have the RC version running on a version 3.2.2 development board, seems to work perfectly well. Hard to test though as the number of days before a 'sleeper' is set cannot be set below 10. However looks to be a first class extension, with excellent ACP facilities. If it proves stable I ...

Re: Reset Password too long

Hi David63 Sorry if you think me disingenuous, re older folk. I am probably in the bracket (75) and I have to say that some of my older users are pretty savvy, but many unfortunately are not, or don't try very hard! Re remarks by canonknipser re changing the forgot password functionality. I had miss...

Re: Reset Password too long

Hi Janus and other contributors Thanks for the suggestions, currently I have the forgot password functionality disabled in ACP, and am assisting users as the administrator with lost usernames and passwords. I will try the extension to allow login by e-mail or username; that should solve quite a few ...

Re: Reset Password too long

Hi I also have users struggling with password reset. The standard reset e-mail which is sent out contains a link to activate the password, but you still have to return to the board and either manually type in the random 50 character plus password, or copy & paste it in, assuming you have the skills....

Re: [RC] Digests 3.2.11

Hi Mark I have reset the email package size to 0, and will see how it goes. I am sure that the curl system cron process is working OK, as the digest mails are now created at precise hourly intervals, whereas before I had set the cron task up the message creation time was totally dependent on a user ...

Re: [RC] Digests 3.2.11

Hi Mark, To solve notification email issues with a much earlier version of phpbb I have email package size set to 50000. My board has been quiet over Christmas, and I have noticed my digest emails timed at 05:00 seem to arrive some hours later when a user such as myself has accessed the board. The a...

Re: [RC] Digests 3.2.11

Hi Mark, Another question about system cron. I have a 15 minute curl cron set up as previously advised, this is working fine, and digest emails are being created at the correct times. I am not sure though whether the digest emails are actually sent promptly, I think until phpbb is woken up by user i...
